MONTGOMERY, ALA. (October 2, 2009) – BeasleyAllen.com driver Grant Enfinger was hampered by rain in Kansas City prior to the start of his final race in the ARCA RE/MAX series, but cloudy skies couldn’t dim this driver’s talent. Heavy rain showers delayed practice and ended up canceling pole qualifying, resulting in the Kansas Lottery 150 race set based on current 2009 ARCA RE/MAX Series Car Owner Points. Although Enfinger has been running at the front of the pack in recent races, placing third at Talladega and consecutive to-the-wire seconds at Kentucky and Chicagoland speedways, he doesn’t have as many season owner points as other drivers, and ended up with a 29th place starting position for the race. Despite a start near the back of the pack, Enfinger still finished at the front, pulling an impressive third, behind series rookie Parker Kligerman and Justin Lofton.
Enfinger negotiated traffic quickly at the race start, putting the BeasleyAllen.com car in the top 10. He was as high as second place during the race, finally maintaining third during the final 30 laps of racing. While there is one remaining ARCA race at Rockingham Oct. 11, the race at Kansas Speedway marked the end of the Beasley Allen sponsored ARCA events.
“We would love to get sponsorship for Rockingham, but Beasley Allen put us in one more race than it originally committed and we are grateful for that,” Enfinger said. “One year ago, we had one unproven ARCA short track car. Beasley Allen has enabled us to put this race team on the national stage and provided the resources for us to compete with established, professional teams associated with veteran NASCAR organizations,” he said.
Enfinger will bring one of the ARCA cars to Beasley Allen’s Legal Strategies Conference and Expo, the largest continuing education event in the state for Alabama lawyers in private practice. That event is set for Nov. 20-21 at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center, in downtown Montgomery.
Two weeks after his visit to Montgomery, Enfinger will pilot the Beasley Allen Super Late Model at the Snowball Derby.
“We put the BeasleyAllen.com car on the pole, establishing a track record lap time and finishing second last year. The only way we can improve is to win the Derby, and we are going to give it our all to do that, Enfinger said.
